Personal Quote:

[on reaching age 70] As far as I'm concerned, in my head, I'm 24. That's just how it is. The number, yeah, it's high. But I just felt I've got to celebrate it. I'm on my feet and I'm doing what I love to do, and I'm in a profession, as a musician, where we can go on for as long as we can go on. I'm not hiding from it, you know. See more »

Trivia:

The first song he had a hand in writing for an album by The Beatles was "What Goes On", from the album "Rubber Soul" (1965) (which he co-wrote with John Lennon and Paul McCartney). He began his own first song "Don't Pass Me By" years earlier, but it did not appear until the "White Album" (1968). See more »
